Murwillumbah businesses open art trail
IT'S time to dust off the paint brushes as the Murwillumbah Art Trial is looking for artists and exhibitors for 2017.
While the third annual art trail isn't until May, organisers are calling for artists and businesses to get involved now.
Businesses are encouraged to host art galleries and pop up studios on their premises.
Murwillumbah Art Trail business manager Natascha Wernick said preparations are under way to ensure visitors enjoy the trail.
"We aim to have an online booking system up in February where tourists can book creative workshops, guided tours, a progressive VIP dinner, a fabulous opening night event and film tickets to create their own MAT tourist package,” Ms Wernick said.
Murwillumbah Art Trial curator Annie Long said the six-day exhibition would boast a diversity of art for people to enjoy.
"An exciting new creative element to the 2017 event will be the outdoor projections onto buildings and shop windows,” Ms Long said.
"Artist Diane James and Peter Charuk are using new technologies to provide something completely new for Murwillumbah.”
Expressions of interested are due by December 21.
